 M15 or M15-13?
Author: Bruno

“M15”; a traditional mouthpiece (pitch 442 Hz)
“M15 13”: an optimized bore for the 13 series (American pitch440 Hz)

The above model designations were copy/pasted from a Van Doren article.
I've been thinking about trying one or the other. Here's my question: since (I think!) that these are essentially the same MP except for the pitch, wouldn't it be better to play the M15 and pull the barrel a little when needed, thus gaining the advantage of being able to play at both 442 and 440.
I pull the barrel when needed and I've never noticed intonation problems. A clarinettist friend of mine who knew Goodman said he played with the barrel pulled, (I've seen his horn with the barrel pulled myself) so I don't think that's a problem.

Or are they two completely different MPs?
